Artificial Intelligence (AI) has come a long way since its inception in the 1950s. Since then, it has transformed various aspects of our society, like medical diagnosis and criminal sentencing. We will discuss how AI can be both a catalyst for progress and a source of concern as we strive to create a more just and equitable world.

As we delve into the rapid evolution of tools like ChatGPT, we will identify opportunities for leveraging this technology to promote social justice. We will reflect on the complex relationships between AI and social justice, emphasizing the importance of ethical considerations, accountability, and transparency in the development of AI systems. We’ll conclude the service with a balanced summary of the promise and pitfalls of AI.
